Flora Munroe: "VPD’s actions on Tuesday morning were unwarranted. They took a life, shooting that man 5 times. The officers chose to use lethal force...it’s clear that he was not in a right state of mind & they still took his life. That is not right & it will never be right.”

We can't until sex work is treated as work and sex workers' labour AND human rights are respected universally. The struggle is on, and the fight continues

Today is the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Violence against sex work will not end until we eliminate social stigma and realize sex work decriminalization (not legalization) so that sex workers can unionize and have our labour and human rights protected.

Sex workers deserve respect, kindness and safety as a bare minimum. Today we remember the sex workers who have been victim of violence, and many who did not survive. Your voices will remain heard ❀️ @SexWorkHive@twitter.com
